Vodafone denies giving UK security agencies access to data

Friday 21 November 2014 | 13:58 CET | News
Vodafone stated on its German website that it has not found any evidence of any actions by its subsidiary Cable and Wireless that contradicted the laws of Germany, the UK and the EU. Vodafone also insists that neither GCHQ nor any other British intelligence agency was ever given direct access to its network, and that any interception could only take place with a warrant. This follows reports in newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung, German TV channels WDR and NDR and the UK's Channel 4, after they had seen documents revealed by Edward Snowden.
